2. Online workshop series - 25th October, 1st November, 8th November and 25th November - 11am - 1pm - online using Zoom.
The Dairy Grains Mentoring project will incorporate training for agronomists and mentees during the four-session, online workshop series with Barb Bishop. Barb has more than 30 years’ experience in leadership, teaching/training and facilitation. This experience has developed her understanding of people dynamics and people management and provides a great platform for her to facilitate learning experiences that inspire and empower people to respond proactively to needs within families, workplaces and communities. Barb has extensive experience working in the agricultural sector. The online workshop series has been designed to equip you with skills and tools for communicating, interacting and motivating others in your mentee role but will also equip you with skills that will be useful within your own business, working with an agronomist, other businesses and professional contacts.
Agronomists will be allocated to suitable mentees prior to the workshop, taking into account the relevant production region. Participants at the workshop will also spend time looking at current agronomic practices across both the dairy and grains industries and focusing on best practice options from the grains industry that can be adapted for use in the dairy industry for grain-based and forage silage crops.
